We love a great negroni here at the Monteiths Edinburgh bar. A classic, simple cocktail that never fails to hit the spot. To celebrate Negroni Week from June 4th - 11th we're showcasing our Negroni Sgroppinowhich is our modern twist created byour cocktailpassionate bar team.
Everyone isfamiliar with the classic Negroni cocktailhowever the Sgroppino is an equally tasty Italian cocktail, identified by it’s inclusion of lemonsorbet & addition of Prosecco. We thought why not joinforces and create a fantastic cocktail which you can try and make yourself. Below are the ingredients & method:-
20ml Cocchi Vermouth Torino
1 scoop of tempered lemon sorbet
75ml Fantinel Rose Prosecco
Garnish: Grated lemon zest
Method: shake first 3 ingredients with ice and double strain into chilled glass; top up with Rose Prosecco
Next on the Monteiths calendar is the Ednburgh Fringe Festival. A fantastic time to be in the city as Edinburgh is transformed into the performing arts capital of the world. If you’re out enjoying the Edinburgh Fringe Festival be sure to visit us on the Royal Mile, in the heart of the Old Tow Edinburgh.
